Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The combined efforts of leaders and the trust's director of standards have brought about significant improvements to the quality of education since the school opened. While there are a few minor inconsistencies in the quality of teaching resulting from staff changes, the overall quality is good. Effective teaching ensures that most pupils make good progress and reach the standards expected for their age in reading, writing and mathematics.

Teachers usually have high expectations of pupils. However, sometimes, pupils, particularly the most able, are not challenged enough because the work provided does not allow them to demonstrate their full potent...ial. Leaders make frequent checks on teaching and learning.

They use the information well to provide bespoke advice and support to teachers. This leads to better teaching and improved outcomes for pupils. The headteacher is skilled in identifying and harnessing the leadership potential of staff.

Staff show commitment to further improving the school, although the role of some subject leaders is not yet fully developed. Teaching assistants provide effective targeted support to pupils, enabling them to make rapid progress in their learning. Pupils behave well, demonstrate good manners and respect each other's views.

They work and play together well. Pupils take pride in their work, which is neatly presented and shows attention to detail. There is a strong culture of safeguarding.

This is combined with high-quality pastoral support for pupils which enables them to thrive and make better progress in their learning. Children in the early years settle in well and quickly establish the basic building blocks of learning so they are well prepared for Year 1. Governors and the Creative Education Trust have been instrumental in supporting the school on its journey of improvement.

They provide a good level of challenge. Pupils read age-appropriate books with good fluency and comprehension. However, not enough pupils have yet developed a real love of reading.

Some pupils' understanding of different religions and cultures is not well developed.
